The lightly-raced maiden Dragon Phoenix has shown potential though looks high enough in the weights on his handicap debut. Challow has had 25 starts in the UK and Ireland without winning though he's been running well on testing ground and tonight's conditions should see him in the frame again. Templemary Boy is another maiden who followed a good run in a big field at Navan with a poor effort over hurdles. Aunt Audrey has managed to win once and is generally consistent so has to go on the shortlist though the vote goes to PAVED WITH GOLD. He's not exactly consistent but had been racing over trips too far before staying on strongly over a mile at Killarney when Excelli was behind.
